Beautiful location, charming room (China Seas) and excellent food. Would highly recommend this. Small but lovely room, wonderful relaxed service and superb meal (lamb tagine). Breakfast was excellent. We will be back!

My wife and myself came to the lamb inn with our 19 month old daughter. All the staff that served us were brilliant, it's definitely a local pub for local people but very family friendly, there are plenty of things to keep young ones entertained. It was Wednesday pie night when we went and there 5-6 different pies to choose... More

If you love the Cotswolds and being "in the country", The Lamb Inn will be just your ticket. As you approach the village, you are in the heart of the countryside - fields and rolling hills around you. Tracy Hunt the proprietor welcomes you with a warm smile, and escorts you to one of five rooms. Ours, Leopard Hills, was... More

Just back from a lovely weekend away with friends. This place is a gem, very friendly staff and owner and made us feel very welcome along with the dog. Rooms were very spacious, homely and had lovely character, definitely will be back to experience again, wonderful location central to Cotswolds also.

We stayed in the Leopard Hills room which was accessed by quite a sharp stairway. The room was lovely, steps up to the bathroom and very comfy bed. Staff here were very friendly, there's a lovely courtyard for when the sun is shining and choice of beverage was great. We booked ahead for tea and glad we did, the wine... More

We stayed here with friends for 2 nights. The staff were friendly & welcoming & we enjoyed our stay. Most of the food was delicious, except the cod dish which was so salty we couldn't eat it. There was a power cut on the first morning so we had to get up early if we wanted a cooked breakfast (which... More

We booked a night away in the Cotswolds thinking a walk, a meal and a few drinks finished off by a lovely night's sleep and a full English breakfast. The room was pleasant and the walk completed so we thought we would have wash before our evening meal but the water ran lukewarm. We mentioned this to the reception who... More

When I travel back to the UK this is the place I always stay, or its sister hotel The Wychwood Inn in the same village. Gorgeous rooms, friendly staff and owners, fantastic food, wonderful location, amazing breakfasts cooked to perfection....I highly recommend both these Inns and a perfect place to explore the Cotswolds.

Myself and my husband stayed here during Cheltenham Race week as it was within a 30/40 minute drive from Cheltenham. We loved the intimate cosy feel of the place as it was full of little nooks and crannies. We climbed a really narrow steep stairs to our room which was called Leopard hills. There was tea and coffee available to... More
